My great-great-great-great grandfather was a John Doremus, b 31 Dec. 1789, Preakness, NJ. He was married 9 June, 1811, Essex Co, NJ, to Eleanor Morris.
Perhaps it might also prove meaningful that John's mother was the former Elizabeth Van Houten, also of NJ, daughter of Cornelis Ban Houten & his wife, Sara Demarest.
John, son of Cornelis John Doremus and his wife, Rachel Demarest, she being of the same family as Sara, but their common ancestor is further back, however, Rachel's grandmother, Maria de Ruyns, was a sister of Sara's grandmother, Jacomina de Ruyns. Their common Demarest ancestor is yet another generation back, David Demarest, the progrenitor of the line in America.
I hope this was somehow helpful. If I can help more, let me know.
